Alternative Fuel Promotion

Archived: 07/01/2012

The state of Montana encourages the use of alternative fuels and fuel blends to the extent that doing so produces environmental and economic benefits to the citizens of Montana. The Montana Legislature recommends several guidelines for the development of a state alternative fuels policy, including the following: 1) encourage the use of self-sufficient markets; 2) any state alternative fuels program should have measurable benefits and state agencies must communicate these benefits to the public; 3) state and local governments are encouraged to set an example with their vehicle fleets by using alternative fuels and fuel blends. The state also encourages alternative fuel and fuel blend production. (Reference Montana Code Annotated 90-4-1011)
